    Why did we need to be created if we were with God as spirit?

    We came from God and our spirit returns to Him; why create us then?

    Manifestation of God's glory in the human body is a way in which Divine creation can reflect itself.  Within this manifestation God's essential aspects of love, compassion, strength, and kindness, to name just a few, are manifested as well.  Unfortunately, in the process of the human development, the ego developes as well and thus the separation from Divine spirit and the 'forgetting' begins. 

    The egoic mind continues the separation/individuation process, creating the 'I'm in control' dominance, while true spirit moves into the background.  It is part of our purpose to take the inner journey to reconnect with the Divine essential nature that we are and learn how to live in the world as spiritual beings.

    Many blessings to you.

    I think of God as a farmer and sower of seeds of life for all creatures. He prepares living things and they in turn produce a spirit and this our creator harvests after we and other creations have lived in a new joy and form of expression. Our spirits go to be with God and become a part of the one great light or spirit of all creation and the universe.
    I can think of no more a beautiful and wonderful way that our great Artist or creator, as we call Him, could mold from the earthen clay and paint such a radiant rainbow of beauty, than to make living things and provide sanctuary for the spirit that will later join the family of light.
    I am thankful to God for the mind that he gave me so that I can appreciate this marvelous world and all that is in it.

    The way it's been put to me is that when we were The Whole (God) we are unable to experience anything.  We need 'relativity.' e.g. I am here, you are there.  I am big, that is small.   This is hot, this is cold.   If you are omniscient, omnipresent, and omini potent et cetera you cannot experience anything because you ARE everything and every thing.   In other words The Whole deliberately split into fragments, bits, pieces, lesser than The Whole that it might experience itself.   

         The story of the 'Little Soul and the Sun' as told in one of Neale Donald Walsch's bestselling books, Conversations with God (not sure which of the trilogy) explains it very well.

    I agree with whonunuwho about god being like a farmer sowing seeds, we are his creations he wants to see us grow and become strong spiritually he wants to take pride in who and what we become as individuals and as a people.

    On what biblical grounds do you say that we were "with God as spirit"?  That sounds more like eastern mysticism than Christianity.  While God has an eternal past, human beings don't.  We begin at the moment of conception and have an eternal future but not an eternal past, except in the plan of God.

    Genesis 1:26:Job 33:4;Jeremiah 1:5 (about the prophet and I'm sure us as well) and Ecclesistes 12:7 and others are the basis for my comment we were with God as spirit.

    Thank you for the comments everyone. This will probably be my first question I ask the LORD when I see Him! I am thinking about turning this and other questions into a hub, what do think?

    That's easy. Everyone knows the answer to that question.

    God created the earth and wanted someone to care for His creation.

    Genesis of course. Man was created to have dominion over the Earth and its creatures, to be its steward and caretaker. How are we doing so far?
